I was the New Year's baby for my town, but it was a very small town - I was born on January 17!
My cousin's wife's cousin was engaged to Amy Carter (former US pres. Jimmy's daughter), but they never got married (I met her at my cousin's wedding 14 years ago...)
These next two possibly only Canadians (or northern Americans) will appreciate:
I once sat next to Al Waxman (TV's "King of Kensington") on a plane, and I met the Hanson brothers at a hockey game.
I've had my picture in the paper numerous times - once for an article promoting my personal chef business, once while protesting in university, and once totally by accident, when I was waiting for a bus across the street from a protest gathering. I've also been on the local breakfast TV show doing a food demo.
I have friends who've met Phil Collins, Def Leppard and other rock acts because they worked in the local cymbal factory where these guys would come and get custom orders, plus my brother was friends with the owner's son. Never met any of them myself, but the buzz at school the next day was always exciting... I'm really tugging threads now... I think I'm done...
